Apparently I hadn't seen this thread in quite some time.
It's not just the details that kill me about a story. I appreciate the details. It's how they can write a three page run-on sentence just to say "I farted". It's the space filling words that don't provide detail nor significance to the story and just come across as trying to read a story out of a word search. You know the significant words are in there somewhere, they key is just to know what words you're looking for and you might be able to deduce a point.
